"... some of the finest of Ross Gibson's essays across ten years of thinking about Australia... " -- Media Information Australia In this study of Western aesthetics and the politics of everyday life, Ross Gibson offers provocative analyses of Australia's films and examines an array of objects and attitudes encountered in his southern locale. His twelve chapters interweave to form an essay on the realignment of space, time, and meaning in contemporary Western societies. Gibson demonstrates how these different systems of representation construct "Australia."

National Bestseller Joan Didion has always kept notebooks—of overheard dialogue, interviews, drafts of essays, copies of articles. Here are two extended excerpts from notebooks she kept in the 1970s; read together, they form a piercing view of the American political and cultural landscape. *One of the Best Books of the Year: NPR, Harper's Bazaar* “Notes on the South” traces a road trip that she and her husband, John Gregory Dunne, took through Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Her acute observations about the small towns they pass through, her interviews with local figures, and their preoccupation with race, class, and heritage suggest a South largely unchanged today. “California Notes” began as an assignment from Rolling Stone on the Patty Hearst trial. Though Didion never wrote the piece, the time she spent watching the trial in San Francisco triggered thoughts about the West and her own upbringing in Sacramento. Here we not only see Didion’s signature irony and imagination in play, we’re also granted an illuminating glimpse into her mind and process.

Is the Southwest a place different from other places?

Is the Southwest a place different from other places? Are there traditions, haunts, and longings that make Southwesterners part of older things, yet set them apart? Are the boundaries geographical, or cultural, or both? Is there, after all, a Southwest, or is it simply an extension of the Old and New South, or of the West? Such questions, which have puzzled historians, students, and pundits for generations, provide the framework for Frank. E. Vandiver's graceful and thought-provoking essay on the Southwest, the land and its people, its past and its future.--From jacket flap

Today's counties of South and West Yorkshire were among the first to witness the birth of the Railway Age. The need to link local mills, mines and quarries with their customers, both at home and overseas, soon led to a high density network. But this golden age was not to last. Competition from electric trams, lorries, buses and cars, plus a duplication of lines, began to take its toll. Lines began to close to passengers as early as 1917 and the decline continued through later decades. Fortunately, some have been preserved by enthusiastic societies and the reopened sections of track flourish, with passenger steam trains at weekends. One such line is the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, which has also proved popular with camera crews for films like The Railway Children, and episodes of Poirot and Last of the Summer Wine. Due in 4th October.
